    Me and my boyfriend have been here about two months and honestly, this is the best place i have lived. This place really deserves the 100% rating it has! Its nice and quiet, parking is great, the apartment it self really stands out compared to other places in phoenix! The price is fair and i'm proud to call this place my home, its the first apartment I've had (out of three) that really feels like home! Ill be staying here until the day i can buy a house! Great place to live.

  • Overall, I'm very happy with my experience living in Burbank Apts. Namely, all of the staff that work here standout in terms of helpfulness and reliability; they're also extremely friendly and personable. The utilities/services within the building have been reliable since I've lived here, the area provides a ton of entertainment in a walkable distance, and the apartment unit itself was updated with new floors/bathroom prior to me moving in, which is somewhat rare in Boston. Ultimately, after almost three years here, I don't think I could come up with anything negative to say about my experience living here.

  • I have lived here for going on 3 years now and I absolutely love it. The staff has always been very helpful and courteous. If ever I did have a problem, maintenance was there to fix it in a timely manner. I love the new updates within the complex, too! I couldn t imagine living anywhere else!

  • This is actually the first apartment I've rented on my own. I believe Kelsey made the experience completely painless and informative. So far everything has been going well and I've been a lot of compliments on the appearance of my apartment.

  • Overall, living in this building is a dream - pool, pet friendly, beautiful building and a great location. If I were to recommend a building in Chinatown or close to Metro center this one would be it. They also offer specials pretty frequently, so I've found it to be affordable as well.

  • Me and my wife moved in August 2012 Parkwood Pointe apartments. I feel like I'm staying five-star luxury hotel. Specially the kitchen area. The apartment it's so clean. The staff, everyone from administration to maintenance, are effective, efficient, and considerate. They go beyond what is required to run the building. There isn't a thing they wouldn't do for you. They accept deliveries etc. They made our life so much easier. And "Denise" The Property Manager she is extremely professional and she is on top of her game. She is always so pleasant and helpful. That's why I'm still staying here, They made me feel like I am their family. What ever think that I need they respond quickly. I would recommend this Apartment to anyone.

    Pohlig Box Factory

    Richmond, VA 23223

    I lived at the Pohlig Box Factory for a little over a year and it has by far been the best rental experience I've ever had. The staff here is AMAZING! Holly and Dave do an outstanding job and are super friendly. One of the many perks is they will accept your packages and deliver it to your apartment during the day! Overall a great experience and sad to have moved away.

  • It has been great so far! The area is very quiet and the move in process went very smoothly. It is also in very close proximity to a lot of excellent restaurants and other forms of entertainment . I would certainly recommend this apartment complex.

  • I have lived at Ram's Crossing West for about 4 years and the experience has always been good. I think the office people are very good. I've lived with some difficult landlords and it sucks, but the office here is easy to work with and the maintenance men get things fixed up fast. The one thing I would point out is the outside areas because they keep them clean and it great for walking my dog. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone because the price is good, too and they paid all of my utilities

  • WONDERFUL!! All situations were handled within 24 hours. The community is clean. Management and staff are friendly and polite. Would recommend to friends and family. Neighborhood feels safe and neighbors are quiet.

  • I have only been at Stanford Heights for about 2-3 weeks, and everyone is very friendly. I like that they have a variety of housing i.e. cottages. I love the fact of having no upstairs neighbor possibly making noise and since I have a young boy that is active, it is nice to be on the ground floor.

    Westshore Landing

    Auburn, AL 36830

    Just renewed my lease for a third year at Westshore Landing without even. The management is first rate and maintenance issues are addressed quickly and effectively. Debbie and Billy are both friendly and attentive to the needs of residents here. They get to know each of us and go the extra mile to make life here as comfortable and convenient as possible. One example - I work night shift and any time landscaping or pest control or other services are performed here, they ask that workers schedule my unit for early morning or late afternoon to avoid interrupting my sleep. Details like that mean a lot. I have a teenaged daughter and finding a safe, quiet and affordable apartment community in a college town was a huge challenge, but Westshore Landing has everything we were looking for. Definitely a mix of residents of all ages and backgrounds that make it a fun and friendly place to live. While the complex itself is set off the main road and the atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, the location is convenient to shopping centers, restaurants and schools. The pool, basketball and tennis courts, fishing pond and workout room are all amenities that we use often and are grateful to have. Utilities are extremely affordable, with cable and water included and only an electric bill to pay each month. The apartments are very well insulated. In more than two years in our two BR, two BA unit, I have never paid more than $100 for a month of service from Alabama Power. We are obviously happy to call Westshore Landing home and highly recommend it to others looking for a quality community in the Auburn area.

  • It has been enjoyable. We have had great response from Maintenance staff when something is needed. The office staff have been very helpful also. We have a neighbor with 3 young kids that we hear the kids running around.

  • So far I am enjoying the apartment and the community is doing great. I am glad that my apartment has down stairs and upstairs. I liked my new carpet too. I just use a vacuum cleaner for a few minutes. Keep up the good work.

  • Hello! My husband and I have been living at Asteria Place Apartments for 2 years now and we absolutely love it! Tina is the most awesome apartment manager I have ever met. She will accommodate to your every need and get it done in a timely manner. 2 years ago we moved here from Jacksonville, FL and she made sure to hold an apartment for us so we can move in the day we arrived to Washington. Sometimes my husband and I will stop by her office just to say hello and she always welcomes us in with open arms. Ken our on-site maintenance guy is awesome! He is very knowledgeable on maintenance issues and he gets our work orders done as soon as possible. Ken also helped my husband get his motorcycle working again. Tina and Ken are both very friendly people and I am happy to have them as our on-site staff. Ashley and Jose Vargas

  • We have really enjoyed living here. Been here about 1.5 years. Good amount of space with floor plans. Everyone is friendly. Staff is wonderful.
